Description Orion Poplawski 2007-06-04 18:26:21 UTC
Description of problem:

Current altas spec doesn't build for ppc64.  This breaks a number of downstream
packages (specifically numpy and its dependencies).  Support might be as simple as:

If you'd like, I'd be happy to commit this and submit a test build.

Comment 1 Quentin Spencer 2007-06-04 18:37:25 UTC
Go ahead.

By the way, wouldn't it be preferred to link numpy et al. be to lapack & blas so
that atlas is optional rather than mandatory?

Comment 2 Orion Poplawski 2007-06-04 21:28:12 UTC
Indeed, it looks like numpy in CVS has dropped the atlas-devel requirement, but
it just hasn't been built.  I've filed a bug to ping the maintainer.

I've checked in an built the changes (3.6.0-12) and it compiled fine on ppc64. 
Hopefully it actually works.
